Student Announce March 27, 2023

Get Ready for Fall 2023 Registration

Fall 2023 registration begins April 10, 2023 at 9 AM!  The first step is printing a copy of the Course Selection Form from BannerWeb.  Next, meet with your academic adviser to review your course selections and receive your Alternate Registration PIN and web registration time.  Internet students should contact their adviser to discuss course selection.  Registration instructions are available at under “Records Office Resources.”


Graduating and re-admitting into a new major?  You will need to re-apply through Admissions and pay your acceptance deposit before you will be assigned a web registration time and Alternate Registration PIN. 


Were you expecting to graduate this semester but now will not?  In order to be assigned a registration time, your academic department chair must remove you from the graduation list.  Follow up to make sure your name has been removed.


Please note that students are not officially registered for classes until their bills are paid/processed with Student Records and Financial Services.  The Fall 2023 bill is due by 4:00 PM on August 10, 2023.
